Freedom Car to visit South Carolina VA

On March 24, The American Legion/David Law Firm 76 Freedom Car and driver Jerick Johnson will visit the VA Outpatient Clinic in Greenville, S.C., and the nearby James F. Daniel, Jr., Post 3. The entire team will be at the clinic, located at 3510 Augusta Road, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and at Post 3 at 430 N. Main Street afterward. The community is invited to attend and join the Freedom Car crew in expressing their support for The American Legion, racing and most importantly, our nation’s veterans.

“The American Legion does so much for our veterans, our active military and their families. Stopping by VA centers and letting patients know that they are appreciated for what they have done and saying ‘Thank you for your service’ is very important to our team,” Johnson said.

“A visit to a post by American Legion Racing may provide that post with that much needed spark of excitement and stir up their ambition to get out and do more for their post and their surrounding community. I have met a lot of good people through visiting different departments, posts and VA centers and look forward to visiting many more,” Johnson continued.

Team Johnson Motorsports and The American Legion/David Law Firm 76 Freedom Car will be in town to compete in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville Pickens Speedway on March 26th. The 75-mile, 150-lap race is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m.

Johnson and the No. 76 team have made the move into the NASCAR K & N Pro Series East this season after running in the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards last year.

Johnson is a member of the Sons of the American Legion, while his father and team owner Jack Johnson is a Legionnaire. Jerick’s mother, Debby, is an American Legion Auxiliary member.
